Beyond The Blps
An extremely versatile painter and sculptor, Richard Artschwager has been associated over the course of his career with Pop, Optical, Minimalist, and Conceptual Art.
Now, the Whitney Museum is showing the first retrospective exhibition of Artschwager’s work since 1988!
If you’ve been walking around New York’s Meatpacking District, you may have seen a few of Artschwager’s Blps up on buildings along the High Line and the Standard Hotel, where the Whitney is at work on its new space. According to a statement from the museum, the spots placed in surprise locations are intended to “inspire focused looking, and draw attention to architecture, structures and surfaces that usually go unnoticed.”
